Coaches are essential for teaching and developing players at every level of football. To give their players the best advantage, coaches must be aware of the latest techniques and philosophies involved in coaching the game.

The FA provides a series of training courses for coaches from Level One through to the most advanced UEFA Pro Licence. The courses are packed with expert knowledge and cover all areas of player development. 

Whatever your previous knowledge, experience or interest in football we’re sure that there is a course to suit your needs and personal development.

The Staffordshire FA have developed a strong partnership with the Newcastle & Stafford College’s group to help ensure FA Level 1 and FA Level 2 coaching courses can be delivered in the County at a cost that is as low as it can be.

With the newly formed FA Level 1 and Level 2 courses being established in August 2016, our aim is to provide a strong, well delivered coach development programme for grassroots coaches in the County, and at a cost that is as low as it can be.
